Valuable life lesson for this guy today!
The next step in working on Gavin’s loft was to cut out the homes for the rungs of the ladders. Pretty simple task – measure, mark, cut, and then chisel. Simple… unless I somehow use the wrong marks and cut out way more than I was supposed to.
I didn’t measure a second time to be safe. I didn’t mark the cut lines as well as I should have. I took action instead of pausing to think.
Talk about frustrating!!! All so easily preventable.
Pause, deep breaths, find a solution.
Once the fix was created I paused to consider the steps that had gotten me to this point. So much learning and growth from one simple mistake.

A life defined, shaped, and measured by mistakes, is student of life. – proverb
